Pellington Seeks New Line’s Solace

Mark Pellington (“The Mothman Prophecies,” “Arlington Road”) will direct the long-gestating mystery thriller “Solace” for New Line Cinema and Contrafilm reports the trades.

The story revolves around a former doctor with psychic abilities who is drawn into a serial killer case only to find that the killer also is a psychic, leading to a showdown between the two who can detect each other’s every move.

Penned by Sean Bailey and Ted Griffin with revisions by Jamie Vanderbilt, the project was long being thrown about as, with some minor retooling, a sequel to the David Fincher-directed 1995 hit “Se7en”.
